David Ortiz just won his third World Series in Boston, and was the MVP in this one. It's crazy to think there was a time when he was an afterthought in the league. (Gary Brown; Masslive.com)

It's a lot easier said than done, but Ben Cherington will once again be looking to find the right mix of players for 2014. (Tony Lee; ESPN Boston)

Jake Peavy made a boring, rational purchase after the parade on Saturday. (Drew Silva; Hardball Talk)

Jon Lester is under contract for next season, but there will be work put in this winter to make sure he's going to be around longer. (Rob Bradford; WEEI.com)

WIth his performance at the end of the regular season and in the postseason, Xander Bogaerts showed that he belongs at this level. (Tom Layman; Boston Herald)
